Local Wellness Policies and Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child

Wednesday, January 27, 3:00-4:00PM ET

ASHA Webinar: Local Wellness Policies and Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child

Presented by Jill Camber Davidson, RDN, School Program Manager, Action for Healthy Kids

The Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) model combines and builds on elements of the traditional coordinated school health approach and the whole child framework.  Local wellness policies are an integral component of a healthy school and support the whole child tenet that, “Each student enters school healthy and learns about and practices a healthy lifestyle”.

This webinar will review the local wellness policy rules and provide tips to incorporate the wellness policy committee and its work into coordinated school health programs and the whole child approach to education. 

At the end of this webinar, attendees will be able to:

  • Understand the Local Wellness Policy (LWP) history.
  • Use the AFHK Wellness Policy Tool
  • Integrate wellness policy work into the WSCC model
